Right, in view of recent misinterpretations, I would like the board to declare what they think of when reading, writing, saying, hearing, the words "stats" or "statistics".
Because too many people seem to understand them to mean "domestic records".
Personally, I understand them to mean all things that describe cricket and cricketers; wins, losses, MOTM awards, wickets, runs, overs, things contrived from these figures (run-rates\economy-rates, strike-rates, averages) at any level of the game.
I've just received my season's stats; bat average 4.23, bowl economy-rate 4.82-an-over (amazed it's this good - absolutely amazed, given the number of times I went for 5- and 6-an-over) and bowl av. 38.21.
Stats cover everything about cricket and if no-one kept record of any stats cricket would cease to be of any importance.
